Nottingham Forest hosts Fulham in round 42 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Tuesday, July 7th at City Ground (Nottingham)
You should not overestimate the last excellent results of the hosts - Forest scored points with the teams that are in the middle of the standings and below. And although the Foresters began to show a great game under the leadership of Lamouchi, the results with Fulham, Preston and Swansea will answer the question about the hosts' worthiness and the possibility of getting into the playoffs. Nottingham looks great at City Ground, but it can fail in any game against a team that is much lower in the standings. It failed to beat Derby County in the last round, and the Rams scored in the added time, although the opponent did not have three main players.

The loss of Mitrovich did not affect the actions of Fulham in the last two rounds. Psychologically, this should clearly benefit Parker's squad. Fulham beat Birmingham and QPR. Although it gained six points with great difficulty, it continues to be in the top six. Yes, these victories were minimal, and there were questions directly on the game. The Cottagers show a mediocre game in matches with their closest competitors. However, they have one important advantage over their current opponent - they will pick up the ball for themselves for sure, though there are problems in terms of breaching the massive defense. Fulham suffered the last defeats from Brentford and Leeds, but these teams are currently head and shoulders stronger than the same Foresters.
I would give a slight advantage to Fulham. It seems that the Cottagers will have chances to compete for the top two. One thing is clear - at least the visitors have already secured their participation in the playoffs. For the Foresters, each victory is worth its weight in gold, but they managed to win in only three of in the last ten rounds. The Cottagers must continue their unbeaten streak.
Prediction for the match: Fulham to win with +0.5 handicap
